COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State forward Micah Potter is transferring two days before Buckeyes' season opener.
The university announced the decision Monday but did not say to what school the 6-foot-9 junior was going.
Potter dealt with ankle injuries his first two years and has not met expectations that he would become a dominant inside player.
Potter, of Mentor, Ohio, appeared in 59 games with 16 starts, averaging 4.1 points and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 46 percent.
The Buckeyes open Wednesday at Cincinnati.
